New Crossroads GPS Ad Push for “Restoring America’s Energy Leadership”

 Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies (GPS) today launched a new national advocacy effort promoting American energy leadership as part of its “New Majority Agenda.”

The effort starts with a new ad, viewable here, which critiques the Obama Administration’s restrictions on American energy development, warning that “bad energy policy means energy prices we can’t afford.”  The ad is being run heavily on national cable and in media markets where President Obama is discussing energy policy this week.

The national ad effort is amplified by online/social media activity, including a two-minute web video on energy policy, viewable here, which provides greater detail on the Obama Administration’s actions and the need to change course.

Crossroads GPS urges action on numerous bills already passed by the U.S. House on a bipartisan basis, which would immediately enhance American energy development for the benefit of consumers and the economy.  Among those bills are the following:

  • H.R. 1229, the Putting the Gulf of Mexico Back to Work Act, which passed 263-163
  • H.R. 1230, the American Offshore Leasing Now Act, which passed 266-149
  • H.R. 1231, the Reversing President Obama’s Offshore Moratorium Act, which passed 243-179
  • H.R. 2021, the Jobs and Energy Permitting Act, which passed 253-166
  • H.R. 1938, the North American-Made Energy Security Act (Keystone XL), which passed 279-147
  • H.R. 3408, the Protecting Investment in Oil Shale the Next Generation of Environmental, Energy, and Resource Security (“PIONEERS”) Act, which passed 237-187.
